I used to believe, having only one TV in the house, that televisions worldwide could only receive one signal at once, and that changing the channel would change it for all of them. This was my explanation for commercial breaks and the like.

When I was little I wanted to be an actress because I thought they shrink you and put you inside of a TV.

I used to think it if I paused the TV on one channel, every other person who was watching that channel would get their TV paused too. I always wondered why no one else paused my TV

I thought the police could arrest you if your parents caught you watching a PG-13 TV show and you weren't at least 13 years old.

I used to believe that the saying "Your statutory rights not affected" I used to read on everything was actually "Your Saturday Nights not affected", so people would still get to watch their usual Saturday night TV.

When I was a kid I believed that every show, book, movie, whatever was real. I thought that it was all just a big documentary. I kept this belief until I was 11.

My sister and I used to believe that Lucille Ball was our grandmother because they looked a lot alike. We thought that somehow being a "redhead" meant having brown hair because our grandma's hair was brown and they were always talking about how Lucy was a redhead on I Love Lucy (which of course was in black and white.) We also thought a local store owner was Hulk Hogan from the WWF and a local beautician was Jenny Craig.

I used to believe that I could get a big knife and cut open the TV screen, and the characters would come out of the TV to play with me.

When I was younger, I always noticed that all the commercials on television were always of things we didn't have, whether it be some new toy or an insurance company. After we switched phone companies, we suddenly started getting commercials for our old company and stopped seeing the one we had switched to. It made me think that all companies kept track of what we had purchased so they could concentrate their advertising on those who did not have their product.

My sister told me that pressing on the red button on the remote control would blow up the television. I believed it quite some time, I didn't lay a finger on that button for many years!

When I was very little, I asked my dad why there were commercials on TV. He told me it was to give the actors a break in between scenes. Totally bought it for a few years.

I used to believe that back in the days, everything was black and white. I used to think this because of the old movies I watched growing up.

When I was little I saw Doctor Who on tv and the Doctor at the time wore clothing with lots of question marks all over it. At a local clothing store they sold 'Guess' brand clothing, their logo was a big question mark- so, naturally I thought that's where he must go to shop. I kept looking for him there, but sadly he never turned up.

I used to believe that when people in TV shows turned on the TV, they could see me. It made perfect sense to my 4 year old self. Since I could see them they had to have seen me.
